Wine and Cheese Pairings

Cheddar cheeses are very wine friendly. When pairing a glass of wine with a cheese, don’t over think it too much. There aren’t really any pairings that don’t work, especially with Cabot cheeses, since they’re all made with high quality ingredients. Enjoy some pairing tips, suggestions and even ideas for planning the perfect party. 

Pairing Suggestions:

If you’re looking for a few wine and cheese ideas, remember the basic rule: the stronger the wine, the stronger the cheese. For example, if you’re sampling a particularly heavy red wine like a cabernet sauvignon or a pinot noir, pair the wine with a strong cheese, like Cabot’s Vintage Choice Cheddar or even some Clothbound Cheddar. Although, as we said before, there really isn’t a wrong way to pair wine and cheese!
